HOUSTON – Houston ISD parents and community members gathered Thursday morning to show support for their principal after learning she would be one of the educators who must resign.

According to a statement sent by the West Houston community. Dr Lea Mishlan, the school’s principal, informed staff members that she was among those forced to resign. The release added that Dr. Mishlan received a “B” accountability grade on his most recent federal report card.

The release further states that protesters will gather to denounce “the invasive micromanagement imposed by Superintendent (Mike) Miles and his board of directors, which has resulted in demoralization and chaos within HISD.”

The cuts come after the district announced it was facing a $450 million budget shortfall. However, this is just one of many protests at HISD schools covered by KPRC 2 recently.
